Reconsideration of Visitor Parking Program for ANC 2F

As part of the Commission’s  ongoing effort to implement a Visitor Parking Program (VPP) for ANC 2F, DDOT recently  informed Commissioner Cain that ANC 2F is eligible to opt into (and participate in) the city’s existing VPP program. As such, the Community Development Committee (CDC) will be considering this option at its upcoming meeting on Wednesday, March 26, 2014, 7:00pm at the Washington Plaza Hotel (10 Thomas Circle, NW). If approved by the CDC, the proposal will be considered by the full ANC on Thursday, April 10 at 7:00pm at the Washington Plaza Hotel.

An updated draft agenda for the Mar. 26th CDC meeting is available here, with newly added items (since the original publication of the draft agenda) highlighted in red text.

Establishment of a Mid City BID & Enhanced Parking

LCCA Partners with Local Businesses to Address Community Issues

The Logan Circle Community Association (LCCA) has joined with local businesses to address two issues of significance in the neighborhood: the establishment of a greater 14th & U Business Improvement District (BID) and enhanced parking for local businesses and visitors. At last night’s ANC 2F Community Development Committee (CDC) meeting, LCCA President Tim Christensen and JBG’s Ted Featherstone presented both proposals to the Committee. Click here for a PDF copy of the presentation.

Several D.C. neighborhoods have established BIDs to focus on safety, cleanliness, neighborhood and small business marketing, and events programming.  A 14th & U BID would address similar priorities. An informal planning group met last summer with D.C. officials to explore the feasibility of a BID and came away encouraged to proceed.

The parking issue for businesses and visitors was exacerbated with the establishment of the enhanced residential parking program in the neighborhood. While the program greatly expanded parking opportunities for holders of Zone 2 residential parking permits, it also cut by half the number of available spaces for businesses and visitors on the streets adjacent to the 14th Street corridor in Logan Circle. After months of research and planning under the leadership of JBG Companies, LCCA launched preliminary plans for a parking garage at the D.C. Parks and Recreation property at 1325 S Street, NW.

The CDC voted unanimously (10-0) to recommend that the full ANC endorse the exploration of public parking options by the City Council for the lot at 1325 S St, NW.

For more information about the BID, email midcityBID@gmail.com or visit www.midcityBID.org (coming soon).

Visitor Parking Pass Program for ANC 2F?

VisitorParking

At ANC 2F’s October meeting, Councilman Jack Evans said that if the ANC passed a recommendation for a visitor parking pass in ANC 2F, he would ensure that it is implemented. The plan currently in place for Wards 1, 3, 4, 5, and parts of 6 provides for one pass per household. These passes are designed to allow guests of District residents to park for more than two hours on residential parking zoned streets. The passes are only valid during the hours of residential parking enforcement and in the same zone and ANC boundary as the residence where the pass was issued.

ANC 2F wants to know if there is interest in having a visitor parking program within the ANC and we want to hear from you! Please contact your local ANC commissioner (see list below) and plan to join us at the October Community Development meeting on Wednesday, October 23 at 7:00pm at the Washington Plaza Hotel.
